How to restore the private parts of the postpartum mother?

Part 1: Breasts A: If the breasts do not soften and stop standing because of the baby, the key is for the mother to take good care of herself.


Some people think that breastfeeding causes breasts to sag, but the opposite is true. Breastfeeding has been shown to promote breast recovery.


But it needs to be explained that the breastfeeding posture must be correct.


1, do not let the baby too close to the chest. When he was in the right position and began to suck, he would notice a slight flutter in his temples and ears. If the baby is in the right position, the nipples will not feel pain.


2. Under your chest, place one hand flat on your ribs to support your chest. Avoid squeezing the top of the chest, as this may change the orientation of the nipple and block the gland.


3, each time the next lactation, have to change the different breast feeding. Feeding your baby with different breasts at different times can help avoid putting too much pressure on one breast.


4, before breastfeeding, sprinkle some warm water on the chest to help milk secretion. This way, the baby doesn't have to suck hard and painful nipples.


5, if the breast becomes hard, you can milk it by hand, convenient for the baby to suck.


6, after breastfeeding, wipe the breast with a cold towel, you can shrink the blood vessels, reduce the degree of breast swelling.


7, gently squeeze the swollen nipple, this is an easy to use method.


8. Wearing the right bra can make your breasts feel comfortable.


Part 2: Pelvic Muscles A: To answer the above questions, let's first briefly understand the structure of the pelvis.


The pelvis is a basin of bones that includes two large hip bones: the ilium, the ischium, and the pubis. Below the sacrum in the spine, there are four small bones that make up the tailbone.


The main function of the pelvis is to support the structure of the body while protecting the uterus and bladder. The pelvic floor is made up of a layer of muscles called pelvic muscles. The pelvic muscles are divided into 3 layers, inner, middle and outer, which connect from the pubis to the tailbone and pass through the hip bones on both sides.


The pelvic muscles have three outlets. One is the urethral outlet extending from the bladder, located in the front; The other is the anus, which extends from the large intestine and is located in the rear. The third is the vaginal opening that extends from the uterus and is located in the center.


A ring, called a sphincter, forms at the outlet of the external pelvic muscles, which keeps these outlets tightly closed, especially during abdominal exertion, laughing, coughing, or sneezing.


During pregnancy, the pelvis supports the weight of the fetus, placenta, and some extra fluid in the expanding uterus. After childbirth, these muscles are extremely stretched and weakened, so to bring them back to a strong state, exercise them as much as possible.


Some women worry that tightening these muscles after a laceration or episiotomy can cause pain. In fact, this fear is completely unnecessary. When you tighten and relax these muscles, you can increase blood circulation here and promote the healing process. These wounds are not harmed when exercising, so it is best to start exercising as early as possible.


A: From the moment a 10-month-old fetus is born from its mother's side, the baby begins its own life, but the little house in the mother's body, the uterus, is not all restored to its original state immediately. Now that it has completed its sacred mission, it needs more care and care to bring it back to health as soon as possible.


After delivery, the size and weight of the uterus will gradually return to its original state as the placenta is discharged. However, this process takes about 6 weeks.


As the uterus recovers, unwanted uterine contents are expelled. These secretions are called lochia and last about 3-4 weeks. At first, the blood in the placenta is red, turning brown after a few days and yellow after a few weeks. The color shift is unpredictable because the amount of blood lost during this period varies. The most common is a small blood clot. Ordinary lochia doesn't smell bad. If the clot is found to be large, persistent or extremely draining, or producing a foul smell, it must be reported to the midwife or doctor. This means there is an infection in the uterus that should be treated.


In order to make the uterus recover well, mothers should pay attention to the following aspects:


1. Urinate in time after delivery


To urinate in time after childbirth, so as not to overexpand the bladder or often in an inflated state.


2, the puerperal period should avoid long-term lying position


Postpartum 6-8 hours, after the elimination of fatigue maternal can sit up, the next day can get out of bed activities, is conducive to the recovery of physical functions and physical strength, help the recovery of the uterus and lochia discharge.


When resting in bed, try to lie on the left side or the right side, do not lie on your back, so as not to tilt the uterus backward; If the uterus has tilted backward, it should be corrected in the genicpectoral position.


3. Breastfeeding should be done after delivery


Breastfeeding is not only very beneficial to the growth and development of the baby, but the sucking stimulation of the baby will reflexively cause the contraction of the uterus, thus promoting the recovery of the uterus.


4. Pay attention to vaginal hygiene


Postpartum attention should be paid to genital health, so as not to cause genital tract inflammation, further affecting the recovery of the uterus.


Part 4: Vagina and Pelvic Floor Tissue A: Changes in vulva, vagina, and pelvic floor tissue are inevitable due to pregnancy. The changes and recoveries are explained in detail below.


1. Changes and recovery of vulva


After delivery, it can cause mild edema of the vulva, which disappears within 23 weeks. If you pay attention to local cleaning care, minor perineal lacerations or perineal incisions can generally heal in 45 days. If the perineum is severely torn or the wound is infected, the incision will increase the pain of the mother, and it will take 2 weeks or even 1 month to heal.


2. Vaginal changes and recovery


During delivery, as the fetus passes through the vagina, the vaginal walls are stretched and there is swelling and many small wounds. There will be a tingling sensation of urination 1-2 days after delivery, and it will recover after 1 week. Under normal circumstances, the enlarged vagina can be tightened within 1 day after delivery.


After childbirth, the vagina becomes larger and the muscles in the vaginal walls relax and become less tight. Due to overstretching during childbirth, the vaginal mucosal folds disappear. Vaginal muscle tone gradually recovered during the puerperal period, but it could not fully reach the pre-pregnancy level. The mucosal folds begin to reappear around 3 weeks postpartum.


3. Changes and recovery of pelvic floor tissue


Postpartum pelvic floor muscles and their fascia lose elasticity due to expansion, and some muscle fibers are often broken. Postpartum if you can insist on exercise, the pelvic floor muscles can be restored to close to the pre-pregnancy state, otherwise it can not be restored to the original state.
